I doubt it, I am not. Maybe though he will have an awakening realizing he is mortal like the rest of us and discontinue his spewing of the hate messages. There just might be a judge up there Rush, Repent while ye can.

I hope so, I have no use for any of them. It was Rush though that has the chest pain problem. I wish ill health on very few, Rush does not even come close to getting on my list. Now Osama, well he has made it.

Rush's chest pains have nothing to do with what he says on air - just the fact that his job is very sedentary and he's already overweight. I highly doubt he has a healthy diet either. Considering the heightened emotion he uses when speaking, his blood pressure is likely high as well or he's possibly on medication for it. Either way, he's just hit four of the top five risk factors for serious heart disease. Don't know about his family history, but if he has heart attacks in his DNA, then that's five for five - and batting 1.000 is no funny business when it comes to heart health.

Doc, don't forget he used to give AIDS updates preceded by Dionne Warwick's "I Know I'll Never Love This Way Again."

from this website , earlier in his "career":

"During Reagan's second term a little known disc jocky in Sacramento, California was making a name for himself by reading off the names of gay men who had died from AIDS each week while pushing the applause button and laughing (Character Matters.) The success of taking so much joy in so much innocent suffering made Rush Limbaugh the most popular voice on California radio."

So while i'm not at the point wishing him death (yet -- jury's still out!), whatever I hope he's going through is excruciatingly painful.  Smile

You must've not him or a recent picture of him. He's dropped a considerable amount of weight in recent years.

When he appeared on Jay Leno's show last month, he roughly looked about the same size as Jay. Even Jay was surprised at Rush's dramatic weight loss when he first saw him in person.

Quoting Aaron747 (Reply 15):

That may be true; though I haven't seen his diet so I can't make a full judgment call. While one can lose weight be eating less and exercising, a poor diet can still take its toll on the heart.

The deaths of runners Jim Fixx and Ryan Shay are two examples of non-overweight people having heart trouble (although Fixx used to be overweight prior to taking up running).

At his current size he's still overweight. In any case it's better for him to live at a reduced weight but damage could very well have already been done.

Quoting PHLBOS (Reply 19):

Jim Fixx had a family history of heart problems and serious coronary artery disease when he died - not altogether unusual. Exercise won't help you at all if you have that condition. Ryan Shay died of somewhat rare hypertrophy, which is enlargement of heart tissue that can cause normally benign arrythmias to become deadly. Again, you can be the picture of health but if you don't have an echo or chest x-ray at the right time, that one will get you.

I am just speechless at the level of hatred toward the left over this. Expecting us not in the GOP to praise him going into the hospital and wishing a member of the opposition to experience the same thing? I have zero respect or tolerance for that.

Nicely put. I do not agree with the man, but whishing him (or anyone) ill or death is in very poor taste. Many of us are above that. I would be happy to never hear from him again, but I would rather he just go back to Missouri and sit in a basement waiting for the rapture. But this? No.

Actually I doubt if too many moderates or liberals spend that much time thinking about the guy.

It's fun from time to time thinking about old Rush eating every chocolate eclair within 10 miles of his home before his draft physical to get a 4F. Or some of the flakey things he says that hits the normal media (remember Mike J. Fox) were interesting.

But basically the guy has been an obnoxious mouth for years. I hear his voice I turn him off.

I'll let the Conservatives pray at his feet. But we don't wish him ill.

That would actually be quite interesting. I actually read (somewhere) on a liberal blog this morning that Limbaugh was stalking him. But imagine if Obama did show up to wish him well? Limbaugh would probably find some way to convince his minions that Obama was making fun of him, so it wouldn't be worth Obama's time or effort.

Maybe, maybe not. I would think, or at least hope, that if they were to meet no matter what the cicumstances were it would be a couteous affair. Just because people are on different ends of the political spectrum does not mean they can't get along. I remember reading somewhere that Orin Hatch and Ted Kennedy go along very well.

I stand by my statement. If these are accurate quotes, I think they are hate messages. It took me two seconds to find these, I am sure there are many more out there.

Now that you bring it up, Falcon, you are right! The only ones shouting "If you disagree with Obama, you are a racist!" is the right wing, but they say it tounge-in-cheek. For some reason, they believe that is what the left thinks and believes. Those of us on the left, however, do not believe that for one second.

Everyone sows their own karma, and/or lack of it.

As many Buddhists believe about evil or vile men; "In the case of every man's transgressions, when they are great, twelve years are taken from his term of life; when they are small, a hundred days."

"Accordingly, in heaven and earth there are spirits that take account of men's transgressions, and, according to the lightness or gravity of their offenses, take away from their term of life. When that term is curtailed, men become poor and reduced, and meet with many sorrows and afflictions. All (other) men hate them; punishments and calamities attend them; good luck and occasions for felicitation shun them; evil stars send down misfortune on them. When their term of life is exhausted they die."

LOL!

It does make me laugh to see so many old, white, obese, people always say that "Rush isn't hateful / racist / angry / etc". They demand like small children that people provide quotes and specific instances of said hate/racism/anger, yet will always defend, excuse, and overlook whatever proof is put before them.

For instance, I've watched when posters are presented with the Rush quotes about "stupid and unskilled Mexicans, shut your mouth, or get out", say it must have been taken out of context or was a "joke". Racists and bigots always hide behind the, "hey, it was just a joke, man" mantra. To these people, as long as you claim you are using words like "nigger", "wetback", or "chink" in a joke everything is cool, and those minorities should stop being "so sensitive". Trust me, I've heard it a thousand times from bigots on how grateful I'm supposed to be for them "allowing me to live in their country", even though I was born here, to parents who were also born here, by immigrant parents.

All one needs to do is tour any normal elementary school right now, and 1/3 of the kids are non-white, with that percentage rising to 50% to 55% within the next 15 to 25 years. Can you imagine how angry white, old, people will be then? Good lord!

Oh yea I forgot if you disagree with Obama your a racist. Give me a break. Your party is screwing the dog. Just because people call you on it doesn't mean they hate.

I said hate I did not say racism. In case you are not already aware, hate does not equal racism but nice try at turning my argument into something it never was. As Seb mentioned, the only ones constantly bringing up the "if you disagree with Obama you're a racist" line seem to be right wingers. Why is that?

Oh and nice double standard. So when Democrats call out Republicans they are full of hate but when Republicans call out Democrats they are not? That's some interesting logic.

The source was provided in reply 15. If giving the names of gay men who succumbed to AIDS each week while playing applause in the background isn't hateful, I don't know what is.

That would be a good source if it were true. Fact is, this "source" of information is THE ONLY ONE THAT SEEMS TO HAVE THIS "INFO" and that renders it hardly credible.

In fact, there's a snopes.com discussion about the veracity of this info:

http://message.snopes.com/showthread.php?t=17575

I'm afraid your info (and source) fail the smell test, if for no other reason that if it were true this man would have been run out of radio long ago and certainly wouldn't have the legions of corporate advertising partners he currently enjoys.

Look, I do not agree with or believe in everything Rush Limbaugh or any other talking-head says - I'm my own person and can think for myself. However, those of you who blindly refer to him as a "hatemonger" do so only because that's what you've heard, second or thirdhand from someone else. And then that second or thirdhand erroneous info is carried onward by well-meaning but uninformed people like yourself who have established your mindset on the matter and refuse to believe anything otherwise about this guy.

I'd be the first to denounce this guy if he were literally spewing messages of hate, but that's simply not the case.

I clicked on the link and it does NOTHING to discredit the link in post #15. Until then, I would agree that it stands. It does sound like something he (or many right-wing talking heads) do or did but turned around and say "I never said that..."

According to CNN, Mr. Limbaugh is out of the hospital and there is, according to him, "nothing wrong" with his heart. No evidence of coronary artery disease, he says. Which I find a bit unbelievable. This might not have been a heart attack, but I'd bet his coronary arteries are not in the best possible shape.

Anyway, the other common cause of non-cardiac chest pain in this age group, if my memory works from my Internal Medicine rotation, include esophageal spasm, GERD, and musculosketal.

I'm glad for him that it's not his heart, but I'm sad that this won't be his cue to retire.  Sad

No actually I've listened to enough of Rush's BS firsthand to make up my mind about his being a hate monger. His criticism of Michael J. Fox is but one example of his hate mongering and callousness.

That's nonsense, according to my heart doc pal, even people in their 20s and 30s with usual American diets often have 20-30% luminal narrowing in some coronary arteries. Someone his age and with his lifestyle has to have a few over 50% or worse unless he has exceptionally fortunate genetic makeup. They may have done an agiogram but that's not the most sensitive testing available.

You don't find it the least bit troubling that there's only ONE source, and a dubious one at that, while there's also a nearly 3 year old post on snopes.com where others have obviously called this source into question as well?

Then, on top of all that, the fact that this supposed fact hasn't been jumped on by those who would love to see Mr. Limbaugh fail?

Put another way - would you allow such flimsy "evidence" to stand as proof of something like the wacko 'birther' crowd who swears the President isn't really a U.S. citizen?

Somehow I doubt it.
